the best way to start is to just get your feet wet.

start by making a simple program that says something like hello world.

then a program that can add two numbers together.

build up like that.

First off welcome to the forum, there are a lot of very smart members here who can help you.
Starting off with programming is fun. I would start out with an easier language, I find VB.NET to be pretty easy yet powerful. Do what Root said and start out with the famous "Hello World" program, then work your way up. Start out by making very simple programs, then adding things to those programs and eventually working up to larger, more complicated programs.
